Beautiful scenic course
May 2021
My husband was eager to play this course while we were at a nearby resort. I tagged along for the views and was not disappointed. He thoroughly enjoyed playing the course with the assistance of the best caddy (who knew the course like the back of his hand). The course itself was beautiful, especially the greens against the ocean. I would highly recommend to any golfer, no matter their level. Don’t pass up the chance to play or pay a visit to this course.

Paradise for golf

I love to play golf, so i decided to visit this course. Videos and images thru the internet doesn’t make any justice to this jewel. You don’t know if you want to play or just admire the beauty. It’s a really challenging course, but if you get Gilberto as a caddy you will be in good hands. Hope i can play there again..

Spectacular condition, perfect fairways and greens, gorgeous views and fair layout. The course by itself is not that challenging unless playing the tips with the regular wind in your face on 14 of the 18 holes then straight 230 yd drives in the wind are a must to score. Other tees are more forgiving for windy days. The par 3 250yds over the ocean with wind at your back is insane, tough to stop a ball on the target green with a 3 wood. Greens are amazing, a bit slow but true. Apeed of play is awesome took me less than 2 hours for 18 holes with caddy running. Price is high but its worth it for the bucket list. Cap Cana is an amazing place and very well designed. This is top class golf in an outstanding area.

Loved the Layout...Hated the Waste Bunkers
Jan 2020
You really have to applaude the genius of Jack Nicklaus with this layout! The only reason this didn't get a 5 is because someone chose to use this coral rock in the waste bunkers and off the fairway which is tough to hit out of and messes up your high dollar irons!

Dear Tim, We appreciate your feedback. The original golf course design included coral gravel waste area. The coral gravel is a soft rock, softer than the iron of the club and therefore no marks are left on clubs when hitting from these areas. Even so, we do understand that this may not be the impression it provides and it is something we are looking into and evaluating adding sand to areas that are more directly in play. Thank you, Punta Espada Team

Memorable holes
Jan 2020
The course is a great design a lot of risk reward holes. Stunning visuals. Great condition. The only complaint I have is that on a course where you are paying 300-400 dollars your caddie should have a range finder. The distant markers are only every 50 yards and no markings on the sprinkler heads.

We had an incredible experience playing at Punta Espada Golf Course. The grounds are well kept, views unparalleled and caddies Hose and Cecilio knew exactly how to guide us through each par. We look forward to going back again soon!

This is a gym of a course. The facilities are of great quality and the course was in fantastic shape. I would like to return and play on a not so rainy day. However, this was a fantastic scenery and a good experience for all of us who went.
